Prop 1 would have maintained our library at the sterling level we've loved over the years. It would have cost the average family $8 a month--that after most of us have seen our taxes go down hundreds of dollars a year.
So the idea is, now we can have a crummy library by firing a few police or ripping out other programs we all want. Oh yes, and anti-taxman Howrylak claims he wouldn't oppose a half mill tax increase.
Of course in June he promised voters in private and from his city council pulpit that he WOULD NOT OPPOSE A LIBRARY MILLAGE UNDER 1 MILL.
He didn't tell the truth there either.
So how are our leaders describing the library they may be kind enough to let us have?
